Putney Bridge jogger: man arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm

Police investigating an incident in which a jogger appeared to push a woman into the path of an oncoming bus have arrested a man in Chelsea.

The 50-year-old man was detained on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm at a residential address in south-west London on Thursday morning, the Metropolitan police said. He was later released on bail.

CCTV footage released this week showed a man apparently barging into the 33-year-old woman, knocking her into the road on the east side of Putney Bridge and the bus swerving to avoid her.

Officers said the jogger ran back the other way across the bridge about 15 minutes later and the victim tried to speak to him but “he did not acknowledge her”.
